Motor vehicle injuries account for many personal injury cases within Canada reports OttawaInjuryAttorneys.ca
"Accidents happen any time day or night. Ottawa Injury Attorneys provides a 24/7 hotline to ensure people have the help they require when they need it most. Upon calling this number, individuals find they may schedule a free consultation to start the process. In addition, individuals find that cases are tried on a no win, no fee basis," Simon Smith, spokesperson for Ottawa Injury Attorneys, states.
The first thing one needs to do is to seek medical care. Don't delay, yet be sure to document injuries and any progression of the injuries. Make sure work is notified if the injuries will interfere with regular job duties. Take photos, gather contact information for witnesses, and keep track of how much money is spent for various items related to the injury.
"Many individuals fail to realize the responsible party may be forced to pay for child care for dependent children when the parent is seeing doctors or undergoing therapy. If a person must be called in to clean the home or care for the lawn, document this also, as the defendant may be required to pay compensation for these items also. It's always better to have too much documentation rather than not enough," Smith goes on to say.
Before meeting with the attorney, an individual needs to know what to bring to this meeting. The more information available at this consultation, the easier it becomes for the attorney to determine the merits of the case. This includes making a chronological record of the events involved in the incident and any facts.
"Any photos taken of the accident, the police report listing important information, and doctor reports all help at this time. Don't hesitate to bring any documentation related to the incident, but be sure the originals remain in a safe location, to ensure important evidence isn't lost. With the information, the lawyer can determine whether or not the case should proceed," Smith continues.
